My father, Charles R. Bernasek was a radio and radar technician in VMB 611 and was very proud of the time he served in the squadron. Unfortunately, he is no longer with his family, because he passed away on July 23, 2005.
Being a Marine was something he was proud of being all his life and it meant the world to him. As the Mrines say, "Once a Marine, always a Marine", and I am so proud of him for that because without all of the men who served in VMB-611 none of us would have the freedoms we have today. And for that, I am so very grateful and thank all of you for your service.

My father, Edward F. Slattery, was a young Merchant Marine in the early '40's. I found his name on a manifest of the SS Zoella Lykes. It arrived in San Fransisco on April 22, 1945. It departed from Langenak Bay, New Guinea. Can you shed any light on how he ended up being put on that vessel and returned to the US? Sadly, my dad passed away in Jan of 2009 and didn't talk about his adventures in the Pacific very much. Thanks for any information that you might have.

My dad Lloyd Patrick was a member of Acorn 34 and was stationed at Clark Field. I do not know much about his service as he still will not talk much about it. At 97 years old i doubt that i will find out much more.

1st Lt. William G. Butler was one of the finest men I have ever had the priviledge to know. He was so proud to be a Marine and loved to talk about his "men".
He was my loving companion for 5 1/2 years until he passed away on June 29th, 2010.
He is so terribly missed by me and his family.

I am the daughter of Anthony "Tony" Dias he served as a top turret gunner for the VMB 611. Thank you for putting this website together. Does anyone know how many active former vmb 611 members are still alive. My Dad is turning 89 and still thinks he is 18, I know he would love to hear from his old buddies. Please feel free to contact me. Semper Fi. I loved going to many of the reunions and meeting these brave heros. I loved their stories and personalities. Tom Hamby, Timberman, Wildman, Lisa, Flynn, Rohback, some amazing men to name a few.

My uncle was Ivan Fritz. He was a navigator-bombadier with 611. It's great to read all the information on this sight and if anyone has any information on him, I would love to hear it! Thank you to all who served and the families of those that sacrificed so much!

Hello, my husband and I have enjoyed reading your post. He was on the Zoella Lykes with Acorn 34. He recalls many of these memories, including the only casuality and personal friend "Ted Geyer". We left Port Hueneme on September 26, 1944 and didn't arrive on Luzon until five months later. I would enjoy hearing from others who also served with Acron 34. I was friends with Edwin Moler from West VA and would like to know how he is doing?

My father was Carl Henry Woodle. I noticed a post by james mceachern that referenced his name, but I could not post a reply to it. Dad passed away in March 1999, but I have some photos and part of his military record. I would love to hear from anyone who knew him, or had additional photos.
